Labor is the series of events by which uterine contractions and abdominal pressure

expel a fetus and placenta from a woman’s body. Regular contractions cause progressive

dilatation (enlargement or widening of the cervical canal) and create sufficient muscular

force to allow a baby to be pushed from the birth canal (or vagina). It is a time of change,

both an ending and a beginning, for a woman, a fetus, and her family. (Maternal and Child

Health Nursing 6th Edition Adele Pillitteri)

Childbirth is painful and stressful event in women’s life, a women that is undergoing

a labor and birth needs all the psychological and physical coping methods she has

available. Having a child is one of the most amazing and memorable thing a women could

have and experience. However, due to some prejudice and lack of knowledge about labor,

often prevents some women to enjoy the experience. Giving an adequate knowledge

about labor is a must so that they would now that different thing about signs of labor and

about labor and delivery in general, so that they will somehow know what to do when it


The emotional, physical, social, spiritual and psychological well-being of a woman

is very crucial in having a successful labor. She will need all the support that she could

receive from her family, relative and medical professionals like nurses and physician.

Receiving emotional support from someone is very important for the woman in labor for

she comes to think that she is not alone and it also helps her to be strong and confident

because she is seeing that her loved ones is there for her. According to study, a woman

who are receiving emotional, physical, psychosocial and spiritual support are less pain for

they feel comforted by the received support, compared to the woman who doesn’t received

Hearing encouragement and assurance from the people around her helps her to

alleviate the pain and help her have a speedy recovery. We can say and understand that

there are different factors in labor pain for it involves, emotional, sensorial, environmental

and existential factors. Our role as a nurse is to relieve the labor pain being experience by

the mother by encouraging her and keep on supporting her, in this case we can reduce

the use of riskier medication or analgesics to relieve the pain and potentially improved the

labor progress. Giving an holistic care as a nurse to the woman in labor helps a lot in

alleviating the pain experience of a woman.

X. Course in the ward

The first time that I saw the patient is on the second day of my duty, she

appears normal and looks like she already regained some of her strength however she

verbalized slight difficulty when she moves because of the episiorrhaphy.

In my stay in the ward I was able to handle her for that particular day only for

we don’t have our duty after that day. First is that our CI introduced us to each of our

patient, and then she assigned us to different patients. Before I start gathering

information from her, what I did at first is introduced myself and tell her what I am going

to do. I build rapport first, between the patient and me, so that both of us won’t have a

hard time being uncomfortable with each other. After getting the patient’s trust I was

able to talk to her comfortably and it slightly become easier for me. What I did after

building rapport with my patient is that I took her vital signs as well as her baby’s vital

signs for 4pm, to have a baseline data. After taking their vital signs I plot the data

gathered as instructed by our CI. After that I let the patient to rest and for some time

let her feed her baby girl whenever she’s hungry. After 4 hours, I again took the

patient’s, as well as her baby’s vital signs for 8pm. And after that I plot the data

gathered again as I was instructed.

I interviewed her, but asked first if it would be fine if I used her case in my

case study and she said that it’s fine. So I started asking significant information

needed, and she answered it honestly. After I interviewed her, I happily say thank you

and say good bye to her for I won’t be seeing her again tomorrow for we don’t have

our duty. The next week after that, I wasn’t able to see her for she’s already been
